First, decide what exactly it is you want to add light to. Are you looking to add more light to a work space, such as your kitchen counters or a home office? Or do you simply want to brighten up a large common room, such as a living room or dining room? The type of lighting you need will play a role in determining the types of fixtures you can choose from.
Pendant lighting is a great choice for bouncing diffused light off of ceilings, whether they're straight or slanted. On the other hand, to light up the bottom half of a room, you may wish to consider chandelier or ceiling fan lighting - the latter is an excellent choice if you wish to conserve on heating and cooling bills.
